podcast feed web backup/sync

I'd like to see integration for either supporting gpodder specifically, or at least some similar service (cloud-based podcast sync/feed backup).

I like using the gpodder program with gpodder.net (gpodder works on windows and linux, as well as Nokia tablets). If there's another cloud-based option that has clients on even more OSes, I'd be glad to change that. But, it's frustrating that I can't keep my phone podcasts in sync with my laptop/desktop podcasts. I would like something that would let me keep my computers and phones in sync.

For a better explanation of features, check out gpodder.net. You don't have to use their client, just a client that supports the site.

gpodder.net

That's interesting, I'll take a look. I created an issue for this - http://mantis.snoggdoggler.com/view.php?id=550

gpodder.net

Hi,

I'm one of the developers of gpodder.net and would like to express that we appreciate integration of other application with our webservice! Actually I wanted to provide the following hints on the corresponding Mantis entry but could not find a way to register.

We provide an open API which is documented at

http://wiki.gpodder.org/wiki/Web_Services/API_2

as well as a reference implementation in Python that is also used by gPodder

http://repo.or.cz/w/mygpoclient.git
http://dev.gpodder.org/mygpoclient-apidocs/

If you consider implementing an integration of gpodder.net and need any help, don't hesitate to contact me at stefan@gpodder.net or file bugs at

https://bugs.gpodder.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=gpodder.net

Regards,

Stefan

gpodder

Great info Stephan. Putting it here works just fine, the mantis issue has a pointer to this post.

Once I start work in this, I'll surely be in contact.

Thanks for posting.

Any news on implementing this?

Seems you also logged a similar concept for potential inclusion here, http://mantis.snoggdoggler.com/view.php?id=346 but it too hasn't happened :-( Using Gpodder at least means you wouldn't have to maintain the service yourself.

Having my podcast subscriptions automatically sync'd across all my devices would be great - for now just my N900 and Windows PCs are able to do this.

Google greader

What I'll probably end up doing is doing a two-way synch with google reader. The next release will have a one way import of greader feeds into DC...the other direction will come in the future.

Update?

I've read in a few threads from last year saying that two-way sync with Google Reader is planned for a future release. Any estimates on when it's coming? I use DoggCatcher on both my phone and my tablet for all my video & audio podcasts as well as for my RSS subscriptions. It's become tedious having to manually mark items as read on each device after having viewed/listened to an item on the other device.

Thanks!

Greader synch

I do have plans to do it, but it's not on the near term schedule. Here's the general roadmap.

http://mantis.snoggdoggler.com/roadmap_page.php

I get a lot more requests for things related to audio and video, and this controls where the development effort goes.

Now I'll back track a little since tablets have become available. I think that's a much more compelling way to consume news on android.

I would like to bring this

I would like to bring this suggestion to the forefront again. More and more, I realize how intuitive it would be to be able to manage your podcasts via a web interface, since I'm mostly using my phone when I'm commuting.

I've tried Podax and it's gPodder intergertion, but left unsatisfied with features I expect out of an poddcaster player, like not stopping after each episode.

Please reconsider either sync integration with GReader or gPodder, if you have the time.

I'm late to the party and a new member but I'd like to be able to help as well as this very issue is what brought me here in the first place. So let me know if I can still be a tester as well, as I'm using DC between two EVO's. Thanks!

Since Google reader is long gone, will you, please, reconsider using gpodder?

I found this thread via a

I found this thread via a google search, I was hoping to find that this feature was implemented as I would really like to use it too! For my own personal needs I am mainly concerned with the ability to subscribe to my podcasts on gpodder.net. This is mainly helpful for those instances where I've done a fresh install of doggcatcher - often it is hard to find/remember all the good podcasts I had subscribed to.

Cheers,

Brian
